What is a "sequin"?

A sequin is a small, flat, disk-shaped bead or embellishment that is often used in the fashion industry to add sparkle and shine to clothing and accessories. They can be made of various materials, such as plastic, metal, or even glass, and come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Sequins are typically attached to clothing or accessories with a thread or glue and can be used to create intricate patterns and designs, from simple stripes to more complex images and motifs. They are a popular choice for evening wear, dance costumes, and other glamorous and festive occasions.
